Second Quarter. Hans C. Olsen W. Carlson L. Sheldon F. Christensen O. Morrow First Quarter President —Walter A. Carlson V.-President Freda Christensen Secretary Leona Sheldon Treasurer Lois Eldred Dr. Hans C Olsen. Dr. Olsen, one of the two sponsors of the senior class, is a graduate of Kearney College, and at the present time is Director of Teacher Training. This is the second time he has been officially connected with this institution, having served as critic and supervisor in the training school after re- ceiving his A. B. in 1920. Two years later Dr. Olsen left for Co- lumbia University, where in 1923 he re- ceived his M. A. Degree. While working on his Doctorate Mr. Olsen assisted on several school surveys under the direction of Dr. Strayer and Dr. Engelhart, in cities of the east. He received his Ph. D. in 1926. Other than his official connection with Kearney College Dr. Olsen has gained con- siderable renown by his published reports on educational subjects. Second Quarter Walter A. Carlson Freda Christensen Leona Sheldon Olive Morrow Jennie M. Conrad Third Quarter Walter A. Carlson Cora Felker Leona Sheldon Olive Morrow Miss Jennie Co7irad. A Kearney College graduate, and now holding a professorship in the Department of Social Science, Miss Conrad ' s co-spon- sorship of the senior class is vitalized with a thorough understanding of the campus. She received her degree from the college in 1920. Columbia University granted to her the A. M. Degree in 1922, and since that time she has been in the social science rooms of Kearney, even functioning for a time as head of the department dur- ing the absence of Mr. Anderson. Miss Conrad ' s interest in the History Club, an organization which aims to study present day history problems, is typical of her. And her interest in the alumni, of which she served as president for two years, is expressive of her interest in college affairs.

The class of 1929 is one that is worthy of mention — one that boasts of many leaders in scholastic and inter-scholastic activities. Among the junior athletes who carried Kearney colors to the fore during the past football season are: Ihling " Brick " Carskadon, all-state half-back, captain ' 26; John Waldmann, honorable mention all-state half-back, captain-elect ' 28; and John Roberts, end, a three year man. Gwen Swift was the girl yell leader for the year. The two people chosen as the most representative students of the year were both juniors, Theresa Grantham and Clarence Lindahl. Many of the presidencies of the school organizations were held by juniors. Theresa Grantham, president of Women ' s League. Clarence Lindahl, president of Student Government Association. Sidney Mosser, president of Manual Arts Club. Mabel Predmore, president of Academy of Math, and Science. Clarence Lindahl, president of Caledonian Fraternity. Elizabeth Loomis, Acting Director of Extension. The juniors had an enjoyable picnic at the country club in the early part of the school year. During the second quarter, a party was held in the gymnasium. Everyone enjoyed them- selves to the fullest extent. Dancing was the main diversion of the evening. The juniors enjoyed an afternoon " Sneak " in the spring. This was one of the outstand- ing events of the quarter. The Junior-Senior Banquet was held early in May in the Crystal Room of the Hotel Fort Kearney. This was the concluding event of the junior year.

When the class of 1930 assembled for the first time in the fall of 1926, Mr. Hale of the Commercial Department was one of the sponsors. He has been connected with the college for eleven years, and has charge of the shorthand and secretarial training classes. Students who have received distinction in the business world, or yet while in his classes, reflect his ability as an instructor. Not only in his classes, but also in the active part which he takes in promoting athletic contests is the worth of Mr. Hale shown. He is an enthusiastic supporter of the Commercial Club, and can be depended upon to give his best to the needs of the students and the organization. Miss Ethel Hill. Miss Hill, the other sponsor of the class of 1930, is head of the Department of Spanish. She took her degree, Bachelor of Arts, at Hastings College, and later her Master of Arts at Columbia University, where she also received a diploma in Span- ish. In the summer of 1923 she did grad- uate work in the University of Colorado. Miss Hill came to Kearney College in the summer of 1920, after having taught in the Kenesaw and Kearney high schools. She organized and sponsored the Spanish club. For two years she was advisor of the finance committee of the Y. W. C. A. and has served on the advisory board of this organization, in addition to various other extra-curricular campus activities. 1 t J!

Coach Dunlap. Coach Dunlap has assisted Coach Ful- mer three seasons in developing a foot- ball team at Kearney College. His past ex- perience both as a player and as a coach has made him a valuable helper in de- veloping backfield men and teaching fresh- men the art of college football. He played football at Hastings College, St. Viator in Illinois, and the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma. Coach Dunlap spent much time two years ago in developing a good sec- ond string team. The " scrubs " began the season with a lineup of mostly green and inexperienced men but by the close of the football year they were able to defeat the strong McCook Junior College eleven by the close score of 3 to 0. This year the instruction was divided, Dunlap spending most of his time working with the backfield. The success of the team as a whole is a tribute to this end of the instruction under Mr. Dunlap. Coach F. R. Fulmer. Having produced conference champions in basketball and runners-up for confer- ence honors in football. Coach Fulmer has established a reputation for his good work in college athletics. Throughout his six years at Kearney he has always insisted upon good sportsmanship and a strict ad- herence to eligibility rules, and Kearney ' s records in the college conference seems to justify his position. Mr. Fulmer came to Kearney in 1922 from the Boulder, Colorado high school where his winning football and basketball teams had won him recognition. Through his efforts athletics in this institution have been placed upon a high plane that cannot be questioned. His motto, " A winner never quits and a quitter never wins, " has been instilled into every athlete under his supervision. Unfortunately he has been forced nearly always to develop practically a new team each year, which undeniably has handi- capped his efforts. In addition to coaching, he takes charge of the men ' s swimming classes, gymnastics, physical training, and personal hygiene. iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinimiiiriiiiiMiiiniiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiMiiiiimiiiii i ii M ii umi iii ii ii i ii i i ) ■ .lll l l l linilllliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiimiiir " iiiiiiiilliiiiiiiniiUm.iillliiWDT ' -i. ■ ■3=£ ' ' = ' ■ Bi n I H H Bv l R M H lJw ' H V ' kMH UK m- K k HHEj HI " jflH I H pLA sV H tt ' " ' p " " 1 ff k V l - sj§ Jackson, Lundberg, Swift, Lucas. Yell Leaders. No athletic team can win a game with- out the support of the student body. And for a student body to lend able support to their teams they must have able cheer leaders. Tryouts for these were held early in October during a convocation hour. There were six contestants. From this group the student body selected Jay Lucas, Gwen Swift, with Archie Jackson and Marie Lundberg as alternates. The election as cheer leaders automatically made them members of the Zip Club, the " Pep " club of the school. When the awards to the basketball men were given in early April Jay Lucas and Gwen Swift were each awarded a leader ' s sweater for their good work. " Doc " Roadruck, Trainer. Davis R. " Doc " Roadruck acted as trainer of the 1927 football squad. Mr. Roadruck ' s chosen profession is medicine. Prior to his registration at Kearney college he attended the University of Nebraska, School of Medicine. His knowledge of human mechanism and his personal inter- est in each member of the squad made him a valuable asset. On several occasions reg- ular players were able to participate in im- portant games although they had been in- jured the week before, due to " Doc ' s " un- tiring efforts. Athletic Board.

The Training High School football jquad went through a successful football season in 1927. A squad of sixteen men reported to Coach Odum for the initial practice and this number increased to twen- ty-four. Captain Harlan Allen was the only senior, hence the Trainers have a right to anticipate another successful season in 1928. The following is the result of the 1927 schedule: Walnut J. H., G. I. ... Trainers 26 Holdrege Reserves Trainers 50 Minden Reserves _ _ 6 Trainers 28 Overton H. S. 12 Trainers 12 Mason Reserves 44 Trainers 6 Litchfield High _ Trainers _ 40 Minden Reserves Trainers 47 K. H. S. Reserves .... 6 Trainers 7 Total opponent points 68 Trainers 216 Mr. Winsor Odum, Mr. Winsor Odum, of Grand Island, has been Training School athletic coach for the year 1927-28. Prior to coming to Kearney, Mr. Odum taught in the high school at Claries for two years. During his school days he was an athlete with considerable ability. He attended Grand Island College, University of Nebraska, and Georgetown Univer- sity, Washington, D. C. One of the best games of the season was with " Pop " Glen Harden ' s Overton team. Overton led 12 to at the half, but the Trainers came back in the last half to score 12 points, the game ending a tie. The Kearney Reserve game, the biggest game of the year to the Trainers, was played under a handicap as five regulars were forced to watch the game from the side lines. The Trainers were unable to score until the last two minutes of the game. A blocked punt by R. Weidner and Williams, a 22 yard run by Bingle, a four yard plunge off tackle by Pat Elliott, and a try for point by Lucas gave the Trainers the needed seven points. With at least eighteen or twenty exper- ienced men returning, the season of 1928 promises to be as good or better than that of 1927. Junior Antelopes Mix It.

Captain Roland Owens. Owens, of Stockville, was a hard-fight- ing tackle and captain. He was well liked by all the men and he had the friendship and faith of the team at heart. He was willing and ready to give a teammate a helping hand, spurring him on with his own cool smile. Roland was a constant menace to the opposition, and proved often that it took more than brawn to keep him out of the play. With his speed and fighting spirit he made many opposing backfield men wish that they had not tried to go through his side of the line. Captain John Waldmann. " Johnnie, " a native of Comstock, Ne- braska, does not need an introduction to the fans and " fannettes " of Kearney Col- lege. For three years John has proved to be a capable leader and a man who does not know the word " quit. " He can hit the line and gain necessary yardage when called upon; he is one of the hardest, dead- liest tacklers that Kearney has. With his speed John skirted ends and threw off many would-be tacklers.

September 23 — McCook 6; Kearney 7. Although the Antelopes won the first football game of the season, when they met the McCook Junior College on the home field, the final score indicates that the McCook eleven was harder than expected, a bunch of fighters and hard tack- lers. The first touchdown was theirs, during the second quarter, when they blocked Kearney ' s at- tempt to kick out of danger and fell on the ball back of the line. They failed to make their extra point. Kearney tied and bettered the score during the second half, after several long runs, when How- ard Boswell carried it across, and Carskadon booted it over for the extra point which made the victory ours. October I — Hays 25; Kearney 6. The second game of the season not only was a defeat for Kearney, but left several of the Antelopes a bit battered. The Kansas gridmen considerably outweighed the visitors. After the battle Captain Owens was out with a fractured shoulder, and Chadwick with a bad knee. Stark, sub-center, cracked an arm in the first five min- utes, but it was taped and he finished the half. Despite the casualties, Fulmer ' s squad held tight, and in the third quarter made their only goal, a pass, " Brick " to Mason; but failed in the try for point. Hays plunged through for half her points in the first two periods, and passed their way to victory in the last half. October 6 — Central 0; Kearney 13. Playing away from home and in ideal weather, the first conference game was a victory for the Antelopes. Profiting by a stiff week of practice and the Kansas struggle, the team was in good shape, despite the fact that Owens, Stark and Chadwick were still on the sidelines from the llinHllimiililimiiiiiiiiiiii niiiiiiliiMiiiiiiniiiiiiiiniiiiiiniiii ii i ii i iii nu iiiii M r i i im ri r cy fiV-) ■ i ' liiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiimniimiminTT i n iiiiiiii i i iiiiiiiiMiiiimmwiiniii ni y Football Resume. week before, but Reilly, end, injured in the first struggle of the year, was back in position. Kearney ' s counters came as a result of long runs. The Antelopes were in position for a field goal early in the game, but Homer Boswell fumbled the drop and the kick was short. The aerial work was effective. Meyers made the down in the third quarter, Howard Boswell carrying it later for the other six points. October 15 — Wayne 13; Kearney 13. This second conference game with Wayne was a big game, it being held on the latter ' s Home- coming Day. Wayne recovered a fumble during the first quarter, deep in Kearney territory, and fought and plunged the ball through. During the last part of the second period, the Antelopes opened up an aerial attack that carried them to within four yards of the goal. Beginning the second half, Kearney received, but soon lost the ball on downs. Wayne took to the air and scored again, and passed it up for an extra point. Nothing spectacular happened until the fourth quarter when the Antelopes be- gan passing their way to a tie score. Three min- utes sufficed for the last seven points. October 28 — Hastings 10; Kearney 12. Undoubtedly the most interesting game of the year because of spectacular playing and tra- ditional rivalry. The Antelope carried a full-page play-by-play story of the first defeat of Hastings by Kearney for the first time since 1913. We quote the headlines; " Thrilling Battle One of Best Ever on Local Field. Bronco Team Loses Game to Fulmer ' s Squad in Last 15 Seconds — The Hastings College Broncos met defeat at the hands of the Antelopes at the local gridiron last Friday afternoon before a large crowd of en- Vi Somelliiing ' s In the Air!

The score stood 12 to 10 in Kearney ' s favor as the smoke of the fray cleared. Carskadon, of the Antelope line-up, was the star player of the game, doing excellent punting, pass- ing, and carrying the ball. Chadwick and Smith and the Boswell brothers also shone brightly, each playing real football. — McCrady proved to be the outstanding player of the Bronco team. " November 4 — York 6; Kearney 6. Although York was probably outplayed in this local game, Kearney was able to score only one touchdown against them to tie the score in the fourth quarter. York in the second period opened a Voyless Kuntzelman passing attack that took them within three yards of the goal, and then smashed the ball across. Kearney advanced to within five yards during the last half, but lost on a fumble; later they shoved their opponents to within a yard of the York goal, but were held. Smith broke his shoul- der in this period. Kearney, in the danger zone, opened up a surprise passing combination, Car- skadon to Roberts, that carried them the length of the field and across, but failed to make the point. November II — Cotner 6; Kearney 13. On Armistice Day a football battle was waged between the Cotner Bulldogs and Kearney An- telopes. Two important factors governed the con- test to some extent. One was the fact that the game was carefully scouted by Peru (Kearney ' s opponent the next week in the all-important game) ; and the other was the strong north wind sweeping the length of the gridiron. Early in the game Cotner forced Kearney to punt against the wind. The ball blew back and Cotner recovered. There followed a series of suc- cessful plays which resulted in a touchdown for niilliliiiHiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiniiniiiiiiiiiininininiimiiniiiiiuiiiiiiii i i i ii ii i imi i ui i ii i m i ii _C £)gVv,. iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiniiinillin,illlizg ' i.sii ' J " Football Resume. Cotner. Late in the first half a double pass be- hind the line of scrimmage and then a long for- ward pass, Boswell to Roberts, resulted in a 30 yard run by the latter for a touchdown. The try for po nt was missed and at the half the score was tied, 6 to 6. From the opening of the second half the An- telopes played a clever open running-passing game. Another pass to Roberts resulted in a sixty yard run, a Cotner player bringing him down on the Cotner eight yard line. Carskadon scored the sec- ond touchdown on an end run, from this point. November 18 — Peru 19; Kearney 7. This, the last game of the year, and the tilt for championship, was played at Kearney on a snow-covered field. Graff ' s Bobcats, knowing that this game only stood in the way of a champion- ship, and with a perfect record of 330 points to their opponents ' nothing, had to win. Neither team scored during the first quarter. In the second a well-placed Peru punt put Kear- ney on their 7-yard line, where they were forced to punt, only to be forced back and over, Peru failing in try-for-point. Early in the third quarter the visitors plunged through for another seven points, and very short- ly intercepted a Kearney pass and duplicated the gain. After this Kearney tightened, began to drive, but were forced to punt. Resolved to break Peru ' s un-scored-on record, a spectacular passing attack carried the ball to within five yards; a quarterback sneak subtracted three, and Carska- don went through left tackle for a touchdown. Boswell added a point with his toe. This last fight was a wonderful battle. Un- doubtedly the Antelope ' s hardest game; not so spectacular perhaps as the Hastings tilt, but plain, dogged fighting. i M i im iiiiiiiiiii m iiiiiiii n ii M iiii i ii M ir iin i i niiiMiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinriiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiii rt f flV-) , |iiiiiniiiiiiiiiiM!iiniiiiiiiiiimiiiii i m oo I [ 1 1 1 [ 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 n 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 n 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 , 1 1 1 ; 1 1 1 w 1 1 ' ■ ' KIWti- BASKETBALL i We are greatly pleased about BASKETBALL.

Kisling, Howard Boswell, Skov, Homer Boswell, Captain Meyers, Morse, Dusek. Ranking three men on the mythical all- conference team by the State Journal proves the calibre of the Kearney squad. These three are Howard Boswell, Elmer Skov and James Lovell. The latter would probably be picked locally if an individual star were to be picked from the five. Lovell, of Hast- ings, guard, is keen to penetrate defense, and a good basketball player. Howard Boswell, last year center for Ra- venna, holds the same position on the An- telope quintet. Sure on the tip, his play is easy and smooth. As forward Elmer Skov, the only second year man on the winning outfit, is worthy of his ranking, and Riverdale ought to be proud of him. Hastings furnished another guard in the person of Captain Frederick Meyers. Stea- dy, dependable, his fighting spirit was an asset to the team. After playing on the Pleasanton team Frank Dusek, as forward, won honors in his freshman year for his excellent basket shooting. Dusek is considered the greatest promise of the future. Homer Boswell, also of " Ravenna, won re- nown as a substitute player for accurate basketing and shiftiness on defense. Frank Barta, substitute center, is the only man who will be lost by graduation, and Ohiowa should know of his hard working sincerity to the team. Marcus Morse, otherwise " Kenesaw Red, " relieved several times at guard and played a steady, heady game al- ways. Dale Kisling, a product of Litchfield, was early handicapped by injuries, but came through later as a substitute forward i ii i iiii ni iiii ii i i i in iiii niM i im niimiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiimiriimmimiilimiiiiiiiiiiiinmnTr wm 2j2v iimiiiiiiiiiiuimiiiiim ' " " " ' ■ ' ■ ' - LU E ' ' ' G " sa=y - ' The Basketball Season. For the first time in history the An- telopes have won a conference champion- ship. This in spite of the noteworthy fact that the team was made up entirely of freshmen, with the exception of one sopho- more. The value of early season games with teams which perhaps outclassed the local quintet was made plain in the conference battles. An early struggle with the Mc- Cook Juniors, and other practice games held during the holidays with town teams from Grand Island, Ravenna, Holdrege, Homer Boswell Barta and other groups, gave much necessary ex- perience and training. The scheduled games of the season follow: University of Colorado At Kearney 43, Kearney 14. The Antelopes dropped the first game of their official schedule, principally be- cause of failure to take advantage of their chances when they got the ball. Kearney ' s offensive was usually delayed until Colo- rado ' s five-man defense was formed. Kansas Wesleyan At Kearney 40; Kearney 23. Although playing better basketball than in the Colorado game, nevertheless the locals suffered a second defeat. Kansas ' in- fallible shooting during the first half earned a big lead, but the Antelopes tight- ened their defense in the second period. Tilka and State were Wesleyan stars. Du- sek, Howard Boswell and Barta were out- standing figures in the tilt. St. Joe Hillyard ' s At Kearney 45; Kearney 24. Central City At Kearney 5; Kearney 51. The Central City five was rather over- whelmingly crushed on its invasion of the Antelope camp. Lovell, Kearney, guard, was high point man. Kisling and Skov tied for second honors. Omaha University At Kearney 12; Kearney 29. This, the first conference game, exhibited a strong defense which forced Omaha to long shots, mostly wild. Omaha was out- played from the first, but their forward and captain, Steele, and center, Prather, each earned three points for the visitors. Dusek, forward, led the local scoring with 10 points. Lovell earned five. Wayne At Wayne 27; Kearney 45. Battling on fairly even terms this second conference game was won only after a stiff iiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiminMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiimmiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiilllllllllllimiimilllimr c.

Wayne held the lead at times during the first half, but during the latter part Dusek and Skov principally, ran up a large tally. Boswell at center. Captain Meyers and Lovell as guards, each showed credit- able unison and teamwork. Peru At Kearney 24; Kearney 32. Not only breaking the record of nineteen years of consecutive wins for the Bobcats, but pushing themselves to the top of the scale in the Nebraska Intercollegiate Ath- letic association, the fast-working Kearney qu ntet crushed Peru in the most spectacu- lar contest ever seen on the college floor. Both teams were in excellent form, going at top pitch from the whistle to the gun. The spectacular playing of Dusek and Skov was especially noticeable, although Boswell at center and Lovell and Meyers at guard played excellent basketball. Krijci, the tall visiting center, starred with thirteen of the 24 points of his team. Even before their game was lost the vis- iting Peruvians admitted that this was the best basketball team ever developed by the college. Omaha At Omaha 14; Kearney 29. Demonstrating their defensive power in the second game with the Cardinals on the latter ' s floor, the team held the Omaha quintet scoreless during the first three quar- ters of playing time. In the last, however, the Cardinals staged a rally and tallied fourteen points, largely on free throws. Dana At Blair 13; Kearney 30. This game was the first played in the new gymnasium at Blair. Second string men, with only Captain Meyers to sup- port them, did most of the playing. Chadron At Kearney 17; Kearney 33. By drubbing the Eagles on the local floor, Kearney closed the season with a perfect conference record and won the title, the first basketball chmpionship in the his- tory of the school. Kearney clearly out- played the visitors. Chadron tightened after the intermission, but couldn ' t hold the locals from increasing the lead. Lovell, and Dusek led the Kearney scoring. Kearney Antelopes vs. High School Bearcats. February 29, a benefit game played be- tween the conference champions, the An- telopes, and the Class A tournament cham- pions, the Kearney High Bearcats, in the Junior High gym, was a win for the col- lege. This game, ending the season, was not particularly fast nor outstanding.

Kearney " Bearcats, " Class A Winners. The eighth annual " K " Club high school tournament held at Kearney February 23- 25 was won by the Kearney high school Bearcats. The final encounter with St. Paul Saturday evening got under way amid an uproar of enthusiasm. For seven minutes and forty-five seconds the ball moved fur- iously without either team registering. Dur- ing the second quarter St. Paul earned eleven points, a five point lead, which Kearney overcame in the third period. In the last few minutes furious playing p ut first one and then another in the lead. At the height of intense cheering from the galleries, the gun caught the game with Kearney one goal ahead, 17 to 15. It is the second consecutive championship for Coach H. C. Eberhart ' s squad. Nelson had little trouble defeating St. Mary ' s of Grand Island for class B honors, with a tally of 21 to 12. Due to the fact that last year Pleasanton won class B honors for the third consecutive time, they be- came permanent owners of the trophy. The A. C. Killian Clothing Company presented the new award which goes for the year to Nelson high. In class C, Brady won the cup by de- feating Loup City 14 to 10. Honors in the D section went to the Kearney Junior high, 15 to 10, winning from Hazard. In all there were 62 teams entered, matched to provide keen competition in all classes. Probably the Kearney-St. Paul tilt was the most thrilling, but the Grand Island-St. Paul match in the second round was indeed lively. In the class C semi- finals it took Brady four extra periods to defeat the Kearney Midgets. Space prevents mentioning all bookings, but the semi-finals in each class may prove interesting: Class A — Kearney 16; North Platte 14; St. Patrick ' s 9; St. Paul 15.

Intra-Mural Meet, March 29-30. With the freshmen taking the intra- mural meet and a freshman, Lydic, of Far- nam, high point man, the first year track delegation was privileged to fly its colors in victory after the practice meets around the last of March. The best record made here was in the high jump, three men besting the inter- collegiate record by half an inch. Second class honors went to the sophomores, with juniors, trainers, and seniors ranking in this order. Lucas ' was runner-up for individual honors. Grand Island-Kearney Dual Meet — April 6. Kearney dropped this meet by a margin of only six points, 71 to 65. After the second event Kearney held the lead up to the last event and the relays; but were nosed out in the broad jumping. The re- lays decided the meet in favor of Grand Island. Lydic, Lucas and Raue showed unexpect- ed strength. Lydic cut down the college record in the mile run to 4:56:5, and took first in the 880. Lucas took first in both hurdles, Raue in the vault and high jump, Pratt in the discus, and Barta in the shot put. Hastings Relay Meet — April 14. Although Kearney was unable to win a first, it placed in five events in this meet and was able to bring home eleven of the medals. The Kearney quartets placed; Skov, Dusek, Gilleland, and Samek com- ing second in the two mile relay, and Lucas, Skov, Carskadon and Lydic third in the medley.

Despite the fact that great odds were on the champions, the Antelope five dug in, and surprised the galleries by an ex- hibition of basketball that held the visitors to a 16-16 score at the end of the half. With growing enthusiasm, the second half set out to be an even fight, but the Hillyard group began sweeping through the Antelope de- Hillyards. Playing an inspired brand of ball far superior to anything shown so far in the season, the outstanding of the early season non-conference practice games was the frolic with the National Am- ateur Champions of 1927, the St. Joseph Hillyards. The team of the Hillyard Chemical Company was en route to the Pacific coast, but stopped over for a match with the Antelopes. fense at will, building up a great lead, from which they coasted to an easy victory. Nevertheless, the practice gained and the confidence aroused in this high-class match did much to build a morale and a machine which enabled the Antelopes to win con- ference honors. i- X 1 1 In- mm The work of the physical education de- partment, other than athletics, includes training in personal hygiene for both men and women, and courses for both in group exercises, swimming, calisthenics, and gener- al gymnastics.

For five years a summer school for coach- es has been held at Kearney College under the direction of Coach Fred R. Fulmer. Again next summer, from June H to 23, 1928, the sixth annual school will be held. These meetings attract men from all parts of the United States who are interested in that department of school work. In past years over two hundred coaches have been enrolled. A statement will illustrate the pulling power of the various high rank coaches who have been on the instructing staff — men like " Pop " Warner, Dr. Meanwell, " Phog " Allen, " Indian " Schulte, " Bob " Zuppke, E. E. Bearg, and others, all of whom have given one or more day ' s in- struction. In one year over one hundred students from eleven different states, in- cluding Florida and Texas, were present. Zuppke, of Illinois. Koegan, of Notre Dame. In previous years the plan has been to concentrate on one subject at a time. This year Robert C. Zuppke, head football coach at the University of Illinois, will have charge of the football section. Mr. Zuppke is not only a leading football mentor of the day but is also one of the game ' s greatest teachers. Many of his former play- ers and assistants are now successfully coaching large universities, colleges and high schools. The basketball instruction this year will be given under G. E. Koegan, basketball coach of Notre Dame. Koegan ' s work at Notre Dame has been eminently success- ful; his squad won eighteen of the twenty- two games played last season. Since Koegan took over basketball coaching at Notre Dame his squad has won two western cham- pionships and has placed a man on the all- western five every year. He has coached for sixteen years, part of the time handling also baseball and football.

Representatives The Zip Club of the Kearney State Teachers College was organized four years ago for the purpose of arousing the proper school spirit among the students, and di- recting the school enthusiasm in such a way as to best benefit the college. New mem- bers are voted in by the club; yell leaders, who are chosen from the student body, automatically become members. The activities of the club are more ap- parent, especially to those who are not Zip Club members, during the seasons of in- tercollegiate contests. This is due to the fact that pep rallies and cheering are spon- sored by the Zip Club. The work, at times other than athletic contest seasons, is to raise money to purchase awards for those who compete in the intercollegiate contests. In order to acquire the necessary money, this organization, as it has done in the past, sponsors at least two drives a year, one during the summer term and the other during the winter term. During the past year, the Zip Club spon- .=ored " The Boner, " during the summer session, and " The Antelope Round-up and Tag Day, " during the second quarter. In addition to this, it conducted the pub- licity campaign for " Jes ' Foolin ' Around. " and took part in both the Y. M, C. A. holiday festival and the Hallowe ' en pro- gram. Several convocation programs were arranged by the club. The outstanding fea- ture of these progrms was the Zip Club quartet which also sang at other programs and on other occasions. l ' i i i iiMniiiiiiMllilliiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiniiii i n ii iim iiii i i iii ii i i m irn-n-rrr _o SS.a_ . - ,i i inimM !

The programs usually consist of three parts: music, including community singing, a literary program, and plays and games. The students get actual practice by ap- pearing in Parent Teachers Association programs. P. T. A. and consolidation have been our main problems for the past two quarters. Speakers from the faculty and the city appear from time to time. Another object of the club is to keep in touch with the members in the teaching field and to render assistance in community work where possible.

Under the leadership of Wayne Daniel- son, as president and Mr. Engleman as advisor, the Y. M. C. A. this year has been an influential organization in the college. The Y. M. endeavors to help young men to realize what constitutes a complete life and a life of service. The Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. combined their efforts and sent one delegate to the great Quadrennial Convention of the Stu- dent Volunteers of the World, which was held at Detroit from December 28 to Jan- uary 1. The " Y ' s " were represented at this convention by Wayne Danielson who brought back many inspirational messages. The Y. M. and Y. W. together planned one of the biggest events ever undertaken by the two organizations in this school. They brought Sherwood Eddy to the col- lege for a three day conference on April 16, 17, and 18. Mr. Eddy is undoubtedly one of the world ' s foremost Christian teachers today. He is a man of world-wide experience, having been associated with students in many different countries of the world. The " Y ' s " feel extremely fortunate in be- ing able to bring such a man to Kearney.

This organization con- sists of all women students enrolled in the college. The dues paid by each member constitutes largely the loan fund which benefits many young women, and makes it jx)ssible for them to attend college. In addition, seventy-five dollars has been con- tributed to the Harriet Sutton Memorial Organ Fund. The Women ' s League en- deavors to promote the larger social activi- ties throughout the year. Each year the Women ' s League makes some contribution to the school. Among the materials provided are attractive pic- tures, the tea service, drapes for the office of the Dean of Women, linen, and fur- nishings for the Stexy. During the programs each month inter- esting problems are discussed. This year the Women ' s League has sponsored a drive concerning cleanliness and sanitation throughout the college. It has been very successful. ' ii ' iiiinininiiiiiini iiii i iiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiii i immiii iii iiiiimiiimiiiiiiimiiiiiilrt ii I t History Club. M. Schneider, C. Felker, A. Hogle, G. Potter, N.

In response to a long felt need for a more thorough knowledge of the history of our state the history club was organized in our college in 1911 under the leadership of Professor C. N. Anderson. The primary purpose of this club was to collect and study material for Nebraska history. During past years the club has collected many relics of interest. Among these is a gavel which is reminiscent of the pioneer days. These relics are on display in the history room together with documents gath- ered by the members of the club. The club was disbanded for several years but was reorganized in 1924. Under the new organization the purpose of the club has broadened somewhat to include world problems as well as those dealing with our state. During the past year the problem of world peace has been carefully studied. AH of the peace conferences were discussed and evaluated with the purpose of finding some means of preventing war. The con- census of opinion favored the League of Nations as the best peace movement the world has ever known. The club meets once a month at the homes of the various members and each meeting is followed by a social hour. The last meeting of the year consists of a pic- nic held at the site of Old Fort Kearney. limilllliiirTTTnTTTTTnTiMninmiiiiiiiimiiM i i ii m ii i M ii mi iiiii ii iii nm ii m i i m iiiiiirrrTT y(?v .lllllllllllll ll lll l llllllllll l lllllllillllllL uE g GQ m il i ii ii iiiii ii ii i i i i i ii iiin i i.iiii i iinii ■;cT ?tF- Camp Fire.

Its aim is to give opportunity for practice in the use of the language, and to broaden the horizon of the students through a bet- ter knowledge of the French people and French literature; it broadens the sympa- thies of the members through contact with French manners, modes of living, and types of thinking. In this way the work of the club supplements the work of the class- room. The meetings, which are conducted en- tirely in French, are held the second Tues- day of every month. After a short business meeting there is an interesting program of French songs, talks, stories, plays and games. Any one who has had French, or any one registered in French classes is eligible for membership. i inilMllllimiiliiiminimiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiMiimiii minimiii i iiii iii i ii i niii i ii i m iirnT . •. y?fc? .-. _ .iiii i iiiiii ii i ii iii ii im i miiiiiiiiiii ™ mj l " ' GQLQ s iiiiiiiii iiimiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiirrT • t. a J Xi Phi.

This organization has been very active in the work of the college. This winter funds were raised by means of small booth sales. These were conducted in the main hall of the college. Tentative plans for a benefit tea are being made, the money to be used for club expenses. Each year the club puts on a style show in convocation, displaying the work which the students have been doing in their classes and foretelling the latest spring styles. Dis- cussions are given by a reader as to the suitability of these costumes for each oc- casion. Topics such as suitable clothes for school wear, for dining out, making appli- cations, and attending formal teas are pre- sented. The club also plans to petition for na- tionalization into a professional sorority of home economics in the near future. The entrance fee is being raised by the activi- ties of the different members. Pins which are very unusual and attractive may also be purchased upon membership. The objectives of this club are to broaden and improve the lives of other young wo- men. From time to time, short talks are given by the members, and also by outside visitors, on interesting subjects. At the monthly meetings delicious refreshments and musical programs help to make the gather- ings even more enjoyable. 11 II II II iiiinimiiiiii HI iinniiimiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiii i ii m iir 23 2_ iiniimmiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiini T[_ [J [ yii ' l Q Q [jQj rmTn i i ii ii i ii ii iiiiiiiiii La Sociedad Espanola. iiiiii;iiiiiiiwi; Arnold.

This club was organized in 1923 under the direction of Miss Ethel Hill, instructor of Spanish, for the purpose of promoting so- ciability among the Spanish students of the college, to acquaint students with Span- ish customs and modes of living, and to provide a means for practical use of the knowledge gained in the classroom. Regular meetings of the club are held monthly. The hour is spent in entertain- ment of various kinds, including games, plays, lectures and readings furnished by the Spanish students and by instructors who have come in contact with the life of Spanish people. Refreshments are usually served at the close of the meetings. At the first club meeting of the year, Pauline Jove, a native of Central America, gave an interesting account, in Spanish, of her trip to this country. At one of the second quarter meetings, two well known Spanish stories were told by the club members, — " Ramona " by Helen Hunt Jackson, an interesting story of Spanish life in southern California was re- viewed by Mrs. Golda Winn, and the story of " Chicken Little " was given in Spanish by Mildred Beadle. One of the most interesting of the en- tertainments given by this club was a de- tailed account of life in Porto Rico given by Miss Culbertson, one of our present college instructors who has spent a number of years teaching in the Porto Rican schools.

Sargeants-at-Arms Charles Snider, Paul Shovlain Antelope Reporters The Manual Arts Club has for its pur- pose to supplement the work of the depart- ment of Industrial Education. The consti- tution of the club specifies general edu- cational aims rather than special. The club recognizes the limitations of extremely spe- cialized education and considers this to be one of its problems. For this reason, the work of the club is designed with the pur- pose of broadening the student, not only in his industrial outlook, but also in his general viewpoint. The club meets once each quarter when the members gather around the banquet table. At each of these meetings a speaker from the school or from the industries is invited to deliver a message bearing upon some educational phase of the club ' s work. It is not necessary that a student be majoring in industrial education in order to become a member of the club. He needs only to show a reasonable interest in the type of work carried on in the department of Industrial Education. In the very char- acter of its general membership the club finds a broadening influence which tends to keep it from becoming too confined to its viewpoint.

The member- ship is composed of students recommended from the departments of Physical Science, Biology, Earth Science, Mathematics, and Home Economics and of the faculty mem- bers of these departments. The purpose of this organization is to promote an interest in science and mathe- matics, and to keep students up-to-date in current and scientific research. • The organization meets once each month. A program is given at each meeting, which deals with some phase of science. The pro- grams this year have been unusually inter- esting. Miss Crisp talked on " Fall Colora- tion. " A paper was read by Cleo Tourney on " Living Mathematicians. " Florence Stew- art discussed " Newer Materials on Min- erals and Vitamines. " " Know Nebraska " was cleverly discussed by Nolan Alexander. A talk was given by Leo Bosinger on " The Importance of Rubber. " Mr. Anderson in- formed us on " The Gas Engine. " " Radio " was the appropriate topic of a talk by Mr. Engleman. Sometimes the organization goes outside of its membership for talent. Mr. Ingram of the science department of Kear- ney High School gave an interesting dis- cussion on " Research. " Dr. Sidwell of the State Tuberculosis hospital discussed " Tu- berculosis " for us.

In the autumn of 1927 there were twenty-eight active Aspasians. The meetings of the club are held regu- larly every Thursday evening from seven until eight o ' clock, the regular program consisting of short talks, current events, de- bates, and parliamentary drill. Each mem- ber is expected to serve on the program committee and to contribute toward the success of the meetings during the entire year. The Orophilians united with the As- pasians in the fall of 1927. The events which took place during the school term of 1927-1928 in the Aspasian society were as follows: Initiation of new members; party at Miss Ludden ' s in De- cember, and a picnic at the close of the school term. llllllllllliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimi i i ii i i iii iiiiii mM i i i iiiii iii im i imMH iiiiiiimiiiiiimiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiicr g3[_| ! cii ' d Q L nni ] ' " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " ' ' " ' " ' • " " asfJ- " The Antelope.

Mantor, Mary Crawford Antelope Board In September, the Antelope started its yearly course under the leadership of Esther Krewson, a sophomore from Elmcreek, and Clinton Gitchel, a senior from Riverdale. The classes in news writing and journal- ism furnish a large part of the copy for the paper. This year, as before, the mem- bers of the classes were assigned regular beats for news gathering in order that the school in all its activities might be covered thoroughly. In this way the paper is not only furnished with material from all activities carried on, but the journalism classes are given practical laboratory experience in newspaper work, undertaken on a small scale. Those who may teach journalism or sponsor school papers are enabled to come into actual contact with newspaper problems, and to acquire some of the knowledge requisite for their work. The Antelope, in the years past has grown up with the school, this being the eighteenth year of its publication. Each week 1,050 copies of the Antelope are print- ed. A great many of these go to the high schools and libraries in Nebraska, many more to colleges in practically every state in the union. The exchange list has grown to large proportions. Besides students and faculty, there are many alumni subscribers to the paper. ' The aim of the editor of the Antelope has been to publish news of interest to students and alumni and to keep before its readers any progress that Kearney col- lege may make. mill iiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiriniiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiirmiiiiiiriiiiiiiiUiiimiiiiirrT ,.

The group pondered long and " loudly " especially when one of the six was, owing to illness in his home compelled to " check out. " Then, " How to fill eight openings with five live ones?

Real work was begun, and the " season " was on.

Such was the case in a very different recital put on by the students of the State Teachers Col- lege, under the direction of Mrs. H. J. Hull. The recital was one of charming story book effect. The students costumed to represent either the nationality of the composer, or the title of the particular piece, easily transported the audience to scenes other than here and now. The wild beauty of the Hungarian dance was sensed not only through the music, but by the sight of the pianist in Hungarian costume. Composers, who before had been just names, lived again, as students appropri- ately costumed, represented them. The af- fair is remembered as one of the most delightful ever sponsored by the music department.

" The Serenade, " a comic opera by Victor Herbert, was presented by The State Teach- ers College Chorus at the Auditorium De- cember 9, 1927. This production under the direction of Professor Louis H. Dierclcs, marked a great advance in the musical training of the college. It was considered by many critics the greatest musical event in the history of the school and ranked high in comparison with the rendition of the original cast in New York City. From the standpoint of selection of cast, size of chorus and quality of performance, the au- dience had a great treat. The stage setting of the auditorium never appeared to better advantage than it did in the artistic environment of the casts and gardens of the monastery and convent school of St. Ursula. The many special touches in appropriate scenery and colored lights along with beautiful and fitting costumes, designed by Miss Louise Enochs and advanced students of the Home Eco- nomics Department, presented most efective pictures. The opera was accompanied most ably by the college orchestra under the direction of Professor R. C. Rogers. Besides the production of " The Ser- enade " being a rare musical opportunity for the students, faculty, and residents of Kearney, its chief function was evidenced in other ways. The influence of the train- ing and the personality of the director, Mr. Diercks, has been most apparent, not only at the time of the performance, but in the general presence of the students in many vital situations. Nothing wins like success. The next opera is assured. — Miss Wirt. i i i i iii i ii n iii u ii M iiiii n iiiiii iM iii i iiiiiiiii i iiii i i n i iiiiiiiiiiiiiiMrtiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiMmTrrT II c SC i t iiiiininmmiiiiliiimn " " " " ( Q LU L ' ' ' ' OQ L D ' I- ' 45- ' J- ■ ii i rii n i ii i iiiii iiiiiiniiwiiiiiiii m Musical Highlights of the Year. The College Symphony orchestra opened the musical season of the year Sunday af- ternoon, November 20, by presenting its fifth concert. An audience of one thousand two hundred turned out to hear the or- chestra. As special numbers Morine Ny- qulst played a trumpet solo and Miss Ruby Morris read " The End of a Perfect Day. " Their final Sunday afternoon concert was given March 18. Under the direction of Professor Rogers this group has grown greatly in the last three years, both in num- ber and ability of personnel, and is now truly an effective organization. December 6 the St. Olaf Quintet pre- sented a varied and pleasing program, chiefly vocal. These five men are all ar- tists, and formerly were members of the St. Olaf Lutheran choir. The singing by the quartette of Russian, Swedish, German and Norwegian folk songs was especially commendable. The feature of the musical year, barring the Minneapolis Symphony concert in April, was undoubtedly Victor Herbert ' s light opera, " The Serenade, " given Decem- ber 9 by the Conservatory of Music of the college. A complete writeup of this feature, with a group picture of the cast, appears on another page. However, we wish to acknowledge that leading parts were car- ried by Mrs. Beulah Van Skilce, Miss Irene Thorell, Winsor Odum, Kenneth Minor and Herbert Smets, a picture of the latter in costume appearing on this page. Madame Renee Chemet, considered in the very first rank of great violinists, ap- peared in an unusual concert at the audi- torium Monday, January 23. On Sunday afternoon, February 19, the combined college chorus of fifty-five voices pre.sented in costume the oratorio " The Seven Last Words of Christ, " by the mod- ern French composer DuBois. The chorus work was said to have been almost up to professional standards. The Carey Sisters, well-known violin and cello artists, played their second concert in Kearney Monday evening, March 12. Their p2rformance, aided by pleasing personalities and beautiful costumes, was thoroughly en- joyed by the audience. This number fol- lowed a faculty recital given on the after- noon of the day before to a large group of music lovers. The undisputed feature, musically, of the last half of the year was the appearance Wednesday evening, April 18, of the Min- neapolis Symphony Orchestra, who played ,1 splendid concert to a full auditorium. This orchestra was brought to the city for a matinee and evening performance by the combined efforts of various groups in Kearney. Great numbers of the students and faculty who took advantage of this opportunity to hear Henri Verbrugghen and his group, reported " the best orchestra that has ever played in Kearney.

An organization that is popular in Kear- ney musical circles is the College Symphony Orchestra. This orchestra was organized three years ago with a personnel of fifteen. Since that time there has been a steady growth, until now it may be called a true symphony. This development has not been in numbers alone, because numbers do not make a symphony. The most marked im- provement, from a musical standpoint, has been an enlargement of instrumentation, an ever increasing fineness of technique, and the unwavering co-operation among the players, thereby giving excellent en- semble work. The orchestra has all the in- struments found in a true symphony with one exception, the oboe. However, plans are being made to secure this all-important instrument, so our instrumentation may be complete. All of this is due to the splendid and very able conductorship of Professor R. C. Rogers. The members of the orchestra owe the success of the organization to the ex- cellent musicianship of the conductor. As the orchestra has been increasing ma- terially, there has been a decided change in the type of music played. Symphonies, symphonic poems, concert overtures and suites are now included in the repertoire of the orchestra. Many of these have been played at the concerts given, thereby mak- ing it possible for the citizens of Kearney and the students to hear these works of art which would have otherwise been un- known to them. Great things can be expected from this organization in the future if it continues in the direction it is now going. Plans are already under way for the ensuing year and all can look forward to the symphony for bigger and better musical presentations each year. ii ii i iii n ii iiiii i i iiiii i ii i iii n ii i iiii i i i iii iii iiii ii MMiiniiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiinniiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirTTTT ' w 9fl .T ; i iniiiinniJii||||||||HII I IIIIIHIII I III I Ii : [_y [ ,7ffAf3Q[_ -t. " 4Jf ' imiiMimiiniiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiini Dramatic Highlights of the Year. " Jes ' Foolin ' Around " — October 21. — This vaudeville program, consisting of one act comedies, stunts, dances and musi- cal numbers, opened the winter ' s dramatic program. It was sponsored jointly by the Theatre Arts League and the Zip Club. Over six hundred tickets were sold for the lively and varied program. Talent from outside the college supplemented local players in this vod-vil program. The new combination spotlights were effectively used. Drinkwater ' s " Abraham Lincoln " — November i. — The first number of the lyceum course, this play by the English- man Drinkwater, held the audience tense throughout its six scenes. True to history in most respects, the play covers the Eman- cipator ' s political life from his acceptance of the Republican nomination to the presi- dency and through the Ford Theatre trage- dy. Despite the automobile accident which bruised some of the cast and made the afternoon performance impossible, the eve- ning portrayal of Lincoln by Eustace Wyatt was very favorably done. Molnar ' s " The Guardsman " — Janu- ary 9. — Said to have been the best play of its kind ever seen in Kearney, the New York Theatre Guild ' s play " The Guardsman, " was staged in the auditorium January 9. This troup, playing the greatest of the four plays which the Guild has, was on its first tour. With an open date between Chicago and Denver performances, the Theatre Arts League and the local Drama league prevailed upon them to stop for their only appearance in Nebraska. Kearney people and students who at- tended were treated to a quality of acting not often seen in a city of this size. The play was intriguing, though slight of plot. The players were finished in their charac- terizations, and had wonderful stage pres- ence and acting personality. " The Guards- man " is probably the dramatic climax of the year. Theatre Arts League Play, " Fash- ions " — March 6. — This well acted play of the period of 1850 was reviewed on page 91. Senior Class Play, " Belinda " — April 13. — For complete writeup of this produc- tion, see page 91. PLAY DIRECTING CLASS. The play directing class, under the super- vision and direction of Mrs. Drake, has put on a number of interesting plays dur- ing the year. Each student must direct a play of his own choice; hence there has been a great variety produced. Some of the best, particularly the first three listed be- low, have been given before various social gatherings after the presentation in class. These three are: Mary Schlitzkus, presented " Will o ' the Wisp, " by Doris Holman; " Columbine, " by C. C. Clements, was directed by Gen- evieve Turner, and Theresa Grantham pro- duced " Where But in America, " by Oscar Wolfe. Others include Andrews ' " America Pass- es By, " directed by Dorothy Craig; Walk- er ' s " The Very Naked Boy, " by Helen Ewald; " Red Carnations, " by Robert Huber; " Voices, " by Mildred Kunz; " Trial by Jury, " by Avis Lambert; " For Distinguished Service, " by Lenore Norfleet; De Mille ' s " Fool, " by Morine Nyquist; " Better Never Than Late, " by Diesel, Helen L. Rumery, director; " The Robbery, " by Kummer, di- rected by Lucille Cameron, and Fotharo ' s " In the Darkness, " produced by Geraldine Hazlett. iiiiiiiii ii iiiiiiii im i i iii iimiiiiiiiiiii mmin iiiiiiiimmiTmmiiiiiiMiiHifiiiimiimTTrTT The Alumni Association.

Engleman Treasurer The Alumni Association of the State Normal School and Teachers College at Kearney was organized in 1906. Since then it has greatly increased in size. It now con- sists of two thousand two hundred seven- teen members who have received the Junior College Diploma, and two hundred ninety- four who have been granted the Bachelor of Arts Degree. In 1927 the Alumni Association adopted articles of incorporation. The general nature of the business to be transacted shall be the promotion of the influence of the Nebraska State Normal School and Teachers College at Kearney; the increase of the number of its students and graduates; the develop- ment of plans for the usefulness of the State Teachers College Placing Bureau and the welfare of alumni. Anyone can become a member by purchasing one or more shares of preferred stock having a par value of five dollars. An alumnus of this school may become a life member of the Associa- tion by purchasing one share of common stock. The Association is also sponsoring the Harriet Sutton Memorial Pipe Organ Fund. This fund has been steadily increasing and it will be but a very few years until the organ will be a reality. As far as can be ascertained our Alumni are to be found in forty-six states of the Union and in five different foreign coun- tries. Although this is a teachers college its graduates are to be found in nearly all the professions. In June of each year occurs the annual meeting, or Home Coming Day of the Association. At this time the classes grad- uating twenty years and ten years ago are special guests. The chief event is the alumni dinner where they can live over the good old days that were.

You Never Get Out of it Alive. This article, dear reader, has no intention to eulogize soap and water; we ' re not writ- ing ads for a laundry. This is simply a preface to the things which are to come. Have you got your listerine handy? Okay; read on. We dedicate this choice assortment of plain and fancy humor to those helpful, con- siderate and thoughtful personages who have been kind enough to tell us just how an annual should be edited. Sorry though we are, admit it we must: the parts of this book that you don ' t like are those parts regarding which we failed to act upon somebody ' s ad- vice. True, as we see how the various portions of this literary masterpiece are fitting to- gether, our sins seem more glaring, our errors more grievous than we had supposed. Yet, we did listen to a lot of suggestions and accepted advice — some of it. Since we couldn ' t accept it all, we are prepared for a lot of post-dated criticism. We are also prepared to listen with great courtesy and concealed impatience to a detailed enumeration of our blunders, of which we are already fully aware, of which we are sorry, and of which nothing can be done — now. There was a lot to learn. We are (belated wisdom) wiser now. Not only these things, but hours of painful typing, dozens of missed meals, rods of chewed pencils, watts of squandered Mazda, and scores of unexcused absences — not to men- tion the innumerable miles of chasing around after people, things, or both — leaves a high rancor still ranking. The temptation to go on a spree now that the pressure is relieved is irresistible. We are weakening. The title of this weighty article should have warned that something was coming. It is. This something is half-and-half: half water and half earth. It is called mud. Congress- men and annual editors throw it; but they use different kinds. Ours is mixed thin enough to splash. If it doesn ' t splash, it may hurt; and we ' re not feeling quite mean enough, or low enough, to intentionally play rough. That isn ' t fun. But mud, earth-and-water mud, soft and splashy soil, doesn ' t hurt when it plops on the neck of your favorite enemy. Sure, go ahead; laugh at him. That ' s what we started this game for. But watch out that your sense of humor doesn ' t suffer a relapse if some of the dirty socks we ' re handing out get hung on your own clothes line. i ii nin iiiiii i iii i iiiiiii i i i rrTTTTTTTTrn-rTTTTTT niiiiiiinMiiiiniiiiiiiiiiriiiiniiniiniiiiiiiiiiiiiirrT iiii ni i ni i i i ni i i i iii iii mm ii n ii M iiirT rjJ] ( l[ «AQQ[J " iiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiin | || | | || i lll M |inin ■■(.

Thou shalt purchase a Blue and Gold, for yea, verily, if thou failest, regret and shame will trail thee to the end of thy days. 6. Thou shalt not linger in the hall-ways, nor shalt perch upon the marble during convocation, for truly the student council may espy thee and much angry, chase thee away. 7. Thou shalt not skip classes, nor conferences with thy teachers, lest thy ability to invent plausible excuses should fail thee, and the powers that be cutteth thy credit. 8. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor ' s answer, nor his paper, nor anything that is thy neighbor ' s, lest thy teacher see thee and bawleth thee out before the multitudes. 9.

A kiss is discontinuous, for there must always be a break. A kiss is geometrical, for it parallels in- sanity. A kiss is never algebraic, for letters can never be substituted for the real thing. A kiss is a coefficient, for it always goes with a girl. A kiss is an exponent, for it raises one to the seventh heaven. Kisses are conjugate, where there ' s one, there ' s two. (This does not imply that kisses are imaginary) . Kisses are Naperian functions, for their derivative is always another kiss. A kiss is a function with two variables. A kiss is an eclipse, for the sum of the two distances is always the same — Zero. A kiss is an Hyperbola, for it takes one to infinity and back again. Kisses may be multiplied indefinitely, but they are divisible only by two. But if you can, gentle reader, tell me how to obtain the zyzygy of a kiss. TEN TYPES OF WOMEN COLLEGE BOYS SHOULD KNOW. 1.

Dear Professor, I am writing this letter in order to tell you what I think of the grades you gave me and to express my heartiest appreciation of you. Any person who would give me such an array of marks as those I received from you is wonderful, and the man who criticizes the ones that you gave me is a blamed fool through and through. I know well to what small extent my work warranted high grades. I do not think that I was entirely deserving of A ' s in all my subjects, but I find to my great surprise that nothing was ever further from the truth than that you helped to cause my undoing and to flunk me out of college. Accept my heartiest thanks for helping me so much in all of my work. I do not think that I am standing alone and separate in wishing you happiness. I am sure my feeling is shared even by those who have had the worst possible luck. Of course, this is my personal opinion, but I think it is true. In fact. I think that if we all knew that you were to die tomorrow the general feeling of grief in all hearts would be so great that the whole college, including undergrads, faculty and myself, would get a terrible let-down and not even the worst drunkards would want to get together for a great celebration. I firmly believe that any man who is not, like you, generous, loving, impartial, firm, and always just, can thus secure the everlasting, never dying enmity of his students easily. He who does not live up to these principles which have led you must be without a particle of doubt deserving of all and any slams which any student expresses, and must have fully earned all criticisms that may be aimed at him. I will close, thanking you from the very bottom of my heart. The thing which precludes completely anything I could do to add to your happiness is the love of your frien is. My only prophecy for your future is that you will very probably be carefully and thoroughly engraved in the memory of all. If I am wrong, I ' ll be willing to be hanged, drawn and quartered by some loving friend like myself. Yours very truly, A Student. P. S.

Women may lose interest in fashion at other seasons of the year, but there ' s not a woman living who doesn ' t want a new dress when all nature dolls up in the spring of the year. Realizing this fundamental need of all hu- manity Rnter ' s The Fashion, Ladies Outfitting Store, 2123 Central Ave., has made extensive jireparations for pleasing its clientele in the 1928 spring sea- .son. With a view to matcliing the particular individualities of particular peo- ple, their buyers have selecte l models of the utmost variety and distinction. If you select your spring costume at Ruter ' s there will be no danger of your " meeting yourself " when you turn the corner.

' iiiiiiiririllllllllllllllllliiliuiiiiiiilMiiiMimiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiilMiiiiiiiiiiiii i iiiiiiimiii ii i i ii i i i iii i rTT T I I lIje ' « ' G6 The End of a Perfect Daze And now before we lovingly put the covers back on the gallant Underwood, and sort over the pile of crumpled paper in the corner for the last time hunting for mislaid copy, and go wearily forth into the treacherous darkness of the radiator-infested aisle of the auditorium trying to find our way out, we must say something for ourselves. We, the pup and I, have together slunk home at scandalous hours after wrestling with photos and paste; we have missed meals, skipped classes; deserted friends and forgotten romance; we have blistered heels and calloused thumbs trying to think up and write down new ideas for the other 167 pages of this literary wonder. Our stock of heavy-duty alibis has been woin ragged with overuse on the delinquent excuse cards; plain and fancy bluffing had to be resorted to in last desperate efforts to head off threatening flunks; and even the blessed luxury of radiatorology had to be curtailed since we became the unfortunate editor. The little task of herding faculty members and freshmen into the studio; of con- serving space and filling space; of keeping tab on thirteen assistants whose efforts had to be synchronized and directed toward a common goal; of spending dollars and saving dimes; and of trying to keep seventeen hours from ruination, has indeed been a rosy one — aye, indeed, a rose-bushy one, without the roses. Obstacles appeared at every turn. Some were overcome; some lack of time, money or originality prevented us from overcoming. We admit it; there are mistakes. We, the pup and I, can find a lot of places where we wish things had been done differently. But there is only the two of us, and the nights are only so long, and one can ' t miss all of his classes — and so, if you find a period where a dot ought to be, hesitate to apologize. We have tried throughout to make this book representative of the student body of Kearney College. We have tried to build a volume that will reflect the true Kearney spirit. We have tried to assemble here facts and fancies which would make enduring the pleasantries of this year of college. We have tried. And before we lock the door and brave again the terrors of midnight in the cold outdoors; before we, weary-eyed, shuffle for the blessed last time to our respective kennels, we, the pup and I, take this opportunity to wish the class of ' 28 Godspeed, with the hope that in the future this volume will be of assista nce when you wish to reminisce over " the good old days " — " Our loved Alma Mater for ever and aye.
